Nothing wrong with cosmetic surgery, says Nhyira Anim, SlimRight CEO
The dream of every woman is to look beautiful. While some have been blessed by Mother Nature, others have to look for artificial means to acquire the kind of body they desire. Beauty is all about the body parts and women would go to any length to make it look as perfect as they want. Little wonder, cosmetic surgery and other types of body enhancement surgeries have become popular. Oftentimes, the results come with tales of woes and regrets.
No doubt, life is about choices people make. Going under the knife may be a wise or an unwise choice. This is the opinion of Nhyira Afrakoma Anim, a woman who has made a name for herself in the beauty and health space, with a primary focus on weight loss and looking beautiful. While she wouldn’t recommend going under the knife, she refuses to take the position that it is altogether wrong to have cosmetic surgery.
Hear her: “ I can’t say it’s wise and I can’t say it’s unwise. People do cosmetic surgeries for different reasons and all I can say is that whatever you decide to do, be 100% educated about it, do your research and be sure of what you’re doing to your body.”
“I believe when it comes to fitness, being healthy and beautiful, women have to do what goes best for them, and also do what makes them happy. If you think going to the gym works /makes you happy go for it, if you think using beauty products makes you happy go for it.
“Beauty for me is when a woman feels very good in her own skin. Beauty is when a woman feels confident, beauty is when a woman loves herself unconditionally. There are several ways to sustain beauty. For example, pouring into yourself, making sure that what you feed into your body is good for your body, taking care of yourself, and giving yourself a lot of love, goes a long way,” she added.
Nhyira Afrakoma Anim founded the SlimRight brand in 2019 and she said her source of inspiration was women. She revealed that over the years she had seen women struggle to lose weight or feel confident in their own skin. This, and more was the reason she decided to go into the business having done her research that most of them would pay any price to have their desired look
“Social media has helped me to understand the daily lives of people. It has also opened my eyes to see that a lot of people want to invest in their body, and as an entrepreneur, I took such an opportunity to bring the best beauty products to the market,” she stated.
